The Scouting Report
Last season, the AquaSox compiled a 44–32 record on their way to the Northwest League playoffs. This year, the club returns key cogs from last year’s club—including all-star infielder Bryan Brito—along with seven members of the Mariners’ 2014 draft class. Instead of foraging pawn shops for each player’s Little League rookie card, fans can check out the up-and-comers in person throughout the rest of the 2014 season. Several games feature special ballpark promotions, such as the sixth-annual AquaSox car show on Sunday, August 17.
Originally known as the Giants, Everett’s minor-league team first triumphed atop the baseball beanstalk in 1985, when the affiliate of the San Francisco Giants won a league title just a year into its existence. In 1995, the club shed its old identity, assuming the moniker the AquaSox and finding a new MLB affiliate in its in-state cohort, the Seattle Mariners.
Like in Abbott and Costello’s iconic bobsled routines, the teams’ partnership has proven timeless. The solidarity makes itself particularly apparent in the AquaSox logo, which is the same trident insignia used by the Mariners during the 1980s—only with the prongs forming the letter “E” instead of an “M.” In 2010, the AquaSox consummated the new Mariners era by becoming Northwest League champions once again, tying a franchise record for wins in a single season with 49.
